X ◊ sovereignty (imperative form)
The ‘sovereignty’ that is attributed to African-American culture should not be
understood in the sense of that term when it refers to the sovereignty of states
as defined by internationallaw. Rather, sovereignty should be understood economically as an immanent principle of supercapitalism which denotes economic activity that is
deprivation of dignity.
I seek to find moments in which dance is utilised from the bottom up,
protesting a wrong, namely the marginalisation of individuals who are
deemed voiceless, less than human. I draw my case studies from one of
the areas which is of key interest to human rights activists and theorists
worldwide. This is the struggle of the Palestinian people for sovereignty
and recognition as a state under internationallaw. This struggle enables
the people of Palestine to make human rights claims within jurisprudential structures that belong to a nation state. This
Unsettling dominant narratives about migration in a time of flux
European military intervention is about bringing democracy
and the rule of law to those regions. This framing of ‘innocence’
has contributed to legitimising an increasingly securitised and
militarised response to populations in movement. The refugee ‘crisis’
was presented as a threat and catastrophe being faced by Europe.
In this telling, it was for Europe to decide the reach and limits of
internationallaw and responsibility and to decide how we should
manage our borders and the unlucky people washing up there.
Postcolonial innocence and processes of migrantification

the Interior, Matteo Salvini. Both countries have also seen the
development of grassroots refugee solidarity movements, though
– as will be seen – these have their limitations.
Our work began with a question about how popular understandings of global conflicts come about. The discussion of Europe’s
responsibilities to people in movement has resurrected questions
about the interdependency of the international community, our
responsibilities to each other and the terms of internationallaw.
We argue that limited knowledge about the histories and challenges
helpful to look at Derrida’s argument on the
fate of the rogue state in the post-cold-war period. This fate seems to herald
one of a number of possible ends of the state, not just rogue states, but the
state-form generally and with it, necessarily, America.
The phrase ‘rogue state’ has been used as a denunciation intermittently since
the 1960s to describe the internal, non-democratic politics of various nations.
But it is only since the end of the cold war that it has gained currency as an
indicator of international behaviour breaking the spirit of internationallaw
violence, those responses subverting intention at times but creating different
spaces in which bodies could meet and heal together. The dance continues
through the dabke, allowing for people to join and create a shared embodied symbolic space where internationallaw cannot allow that to be created.
The argument then creates an embodied dialogue between the dabke dancers, stalled in checkpoints, and Arkadi Zaides’s unravelling of a space for
a chorus of Palestinian narrators, made absent by systematic infringement
upon their human rights. The argument dances equality and
should, of course, have such coverage.

Places where the public have access should also be covered by this kind of insurance. If you are going onto a location, it is worth checking with the people responsible to ensure they are covered.
Most of the regulations and laws behind these pages have come into being because people have died or been mutilated whilst ignoring safety considerations. The local rules and the national or internationallaws are there for your protection. Don’t undervalue them.
Hanna K. (1983) and the Palestinian ‘permission to narrate’
of historical Palestine as a future Jewish state. Palestinian resistance through two intifadas, various wars, and the continued press for the enforcement of internationallaw through the United Nations has placed Israel in a trying and difficult position with respect to its long-term legitimacy. In this context, questions about the rights of the Palestinian people are not easily pushed aside, despite the use of various tactics to undermine the legitimacy of the Palestinian quest for national determination and liberation. Such tactics include asserting that the

America frequently justifies its disregard for the United Nations, internationallaw and the International Criminal Court. For Francis Boyle, the great protector exists in a state of ‘international legal nihilism’ (Boyle, cited in Pieterse,
2004: 121; see also 2002).
America sees its role as the great protector not just because it is the bearer of
the good, in the form of ‘universal values’ – democracy, economic freedom and
individual rights – but because of its great power. As an effect of the cold war
with the Soviet Union and its economic success, America has amassed
